1. Strawberry Blonde Natural Waves

Strawberry blonde is so gorgeous that’s especially easy for blondes to try. One you achieve the right tone, you can style strawberry blonde hair with your natural texture, and maybe adding in a few waves with a curling wand.

3. Ginger Dreadlocks

Who said you can’t have ginger dreads? This look is a commitment if you already have dreadlocked hair. You should look to a hair coloring professional to help you make the color change. Having hair dye, especially a finicky color like ginger, fully penetrate dreads takes a lot of skill! Appreciate your colorist’s effort while you relax and get your perfect ginger shade.

4. Firecracker Red

If you want an alternative hair dye color but aren’t ready to try full blue hair, try this bold red instead! This color still reads as fashionable, but it isn’t totally out there. When you dye your hair a bold red shade you’ll learn quickly that it can wash out fast. To keep your color as perfect as possible, wash and condition with the Dove Nutritive Solutions Color Care Shampoo and Dove Nutritive Solutions Color Care Conditioner.

5. Voluminous Bright Red

For a slightly toned down firecracker red, try this bright red. We love that this color is so dimensional! Just imagine watching a sunset with this sunset colored hair. For some volume and style, use some mousse, like the TRESemmé Beauty-Full Volume Touchable Bounce Mousse.

6. Red Ombre

Want red hair without having to deal with regular touch ups? Then a red ombre might be the perfect option for you! Choosing a red ombre that isn’t just lighter than your natural color will always make a statement. We love how this darker red ombre is moody but still bright.

7. Loosely Curled Light Ginger Hair

There is something so pretty about cascading curls of light ginger hair. This look is bright and feminine without being too girly. You can easily get loose curls by using your standard curling wand at a lower temperature.
